HOW TO GET THERE
The LA Auto Show is held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa Street in Los Angeles.
Parking is available at the convention center for $12 on weekdays and $15 on weekends. (If you are paying by credit/debit card, note that some parking entrances are cash only -- look for signs.) There are several independent lots in the area, some less expensive, some more.
Parking information is available on the Getting Here page (click the Parking tab).
Tip: A cheaper alternative is to take public transportation. Metro Blue Line's Pico Station is a block away from the Convention Center. The Red and Purple subway and Silver Metro Liner connect to the Blue Line at 7th St./Metro Center (1 stop from Pico); the Green Line connects Wilmington/Imperial. Metro Rail information
